    Nice plants! You should add S. 'Dixie Lace' to your collection and possibly some of the other cultivars by Mellichamp/Gardner. Dixie Lace and others will easily survive very low temps. S. 'Dixie Lace' and 'Ladies in Waiting' are both cold hardy hybrids.

    Really? I didn't know about Ladies in Waiting, only Dixie Lace. Would it be possible to leave Ladies in Waiting in Pittsburgh year round, no protection?

    Hey I'm by no means a northerner but I just thought they would be good ones to try.

    This says known to survive down to 0 Fahrenheit for 'Dixie Lace'

    Same for S. 'Ladies in Waiting'

    I'm sure added protection when things get down into prolonged single digits helps.

    Pretty bog, I really like those pings in there. I was just googling them before I saw this! lol.
    About those hybrids that DroseraBug listed, they are really pretty plants when mature. My S. 'Ladies-in-Waiting' is a very pretty plant in the fall. I really like 'Dixie Lace', too. Great, hardy, perfect for harsh conditions.
